I would’ve loved to be a footballer, says Ranbir

If it had not have been showbiz for Ranbir Kapoor, it would definitely have been football, says the actor, who is endorsing a campaign on the sport.

Football is life for me and if not an actor, I would have loved to be a footballer. It teaches team work, determination and discipline apart from being such an exciting sport.

Ranbir said in a press statement.

The 29-year-old is the face of a new campaign by Pepsi. The campaign begins with a football-themed ad featuring Ranbir.

I am thrilled that Pepsi is bringing the joy of football to India and am delighted to be a part of this campaign.

he added.

The television commercial, to go on air Saturday, will see a young football enthusiast giving a cheeky reply to Ranbir, who questions his passion for football. It ends with a delightful take of Ranbir displaying his football skills, with hilarious results.

Football is gaining immense popularity in India and being a true youth soul-mate, Pepsi is proud to be associated with the sport.

said Deepika Warrier, executive director (Marketing), PepsiCo Beverages, India.
